TITLE: It's the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Lyrics and Chords

That's great, it starts with an earthquake
Birds and snakes, an aeroplane and Lenny Bruce is not afraid
Eye of a hurricane, listen to yourself churn
World serves its own needs, don't misserve your own needs
Feed it off on aux, speak grunt no strength
The ladder starts to clatter with fear fight down height
Wire in a fire representing seven games
A government for hire and a combat site
Left of west and coming in a hurry
With the furies breathing down - your - neck

/ G - C - / / G - / C - / G - / C - /
     / Bb - / Am D7 / G - / C - /

Team by team reporters baffled trumped tethered cropped
Look at that low playing, fine, then
Uh oh overflow population common food
But it'll do, save yourself serve yourself
World serves its own needs listen to your heart bleed
Dummy with the rapture and the reverend and the right, right
You vitriolic patriotic slam fight bright light feeling pretty psyched

/ G - / C - / G - / C - / G - / C - / Bb - Am D7 /

It's the end of the world as we know it (3x)
     It's time I had some time alone
And I feel fine

/ G D Am - / / / C - /

Six o'clock TV hour, don't get caught in foreign towers
Slash and burn return listen to yourself churn
Locking in uniforming book-burning blood-letting
Every motive escalate, automotive 'cinerate
Light a candle light a votive
Step down, step down watch your heel crush crushed
Uh oh this means no fear cavalier renegade steer clear
A tournament, a tournament, a tournament of lies
Offer me solutions, offer me alternatives and I decline


The other night I dreamt of knives, continental drift divide
Mountains sit in a line, Leonard Bernstein
Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs
Birthday party cheesecake jellybean boom
You symbiotic patriotic slam book neck, right? Right
